Lincoln (LN) is a state located in the Western United States. Admitted to the Union as the 56th state on July 13, 1917, Lincoln shares borders with Montana to the east, Idaho to the south, Oregon and Washington to the west, and Columbia to the north.

The state originated in the decade following Idaho's admission in 1890, when the residents of the Idaho Panhandle region began to feel more distant from their southern neighbors. Indeed, the region had few roads linking it with the south and much of it was simply cut off by the Salmon River Mountains of Central Idaho. By the early 20th century, a statehood movement endorsed by residents of the Panhandle and north-central Idaho alike had gained enough momentum to be taken seriously by Congress, as opposed to a nascent group proposing that the Panhandle simply be annexed by Washington State (a proposal of which was submitted to and rejected by Congress in 1910, in addition to both the Idaho and Washington state governments). An initial bid for statehood in 1914 failed due to a series of flaws in the new state constitution, but three years later, with a revised constitution in place, and the approval of the Idaho state government, Congress admitted Lincoln to the Union as the newest state – and the last for the next forty-two years, until Alaska was admitted as the 57th state in 1959.
